Hybrid amp, two lamps, of course, but stuffed with FETs. This is absolutely not an "all lamps" ...
1 Watt, gain, volume, equalization (ISF), reverb
The whole lot in a HP 8-inch

UTILIZATION

No need for manual
Its clear and saturated correct, nothing exceptional.
Big problem, a very low hum rot volume. A change of lamps did nothing.
Jacks and my guitars have been tested on other amps, the problem is the HT1
A background, fortunately, we forget a little

SOUNDS

sounds are relatively versatile, tested with three guitars, Fender Telecaster, Gretsch 5120 and Yamaha SA 2000S. I have a rock / blues rather classic game.
I plugged into a Cab equipped with a 12 inch Celestion, the sound is rounder.
Much of the ISF are doing, there is nothing to get excited ...

OVERALL OPINION

I've had three months, bought after reading rave reviews here.
I hope to Blackstar firing a wrong number.
Overall, I am very disappointed, and I sold off as soon as possible.
